From home page of Town of Roxbury, ME website
As discussed in previous posts on this website, RoxWind LLC is proposing a 4-turbine wind energy facility, with associated infrastructure, in the Town of Roxbury. This wind project, which would be sited very close to Rumford, will be a topic of discussion at a public meeting in Roxbury tonight, scheduled for 6PM at Roxbury's Town Hall. The meeting is open to the public.
RoxWind, LLC is associated with attorney John Richardson of Moncure & Barnicle in Topsham . Richardson was a gubernatorial candidate in 2010, commissioner of the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development under Governor John Baldacci between 2007-2009, and a Maine legislator for Brunswick between 1998 through 2006. Richardson also appears to be a member of wind farm builder Native Power LLC, along with Catherine Renault, former Director of the Maine Office of Innovation and science advisor to Governor John Baldacci.
The potential scarring of the landscape in beautiful Roxbury by this project is a serious problem in its own right. Additionally, it may be of even greater significance because the wind industry's strategy likely includes not just attempting to build new large projects, but also tack on small numbers of turbines to existing wind projects. Any such wind project "creep" that might occur here would be effectively expanding the 22 turbine Angus King Record Hill wind project.
